Isabelle Sully ~ Keywords: administration, language, feminist histories, institutional critique, experimental writing
Isabelle Sully (1991, AU) practices across art-making, curating, editing and writing. Working with feminist histories in mind, she takes the mechanisms and materiality of administration as the main focus within her work, developing conceptual projects that span experimental writing, sculpture, performance, exhibition-making and publishing. She received a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne, in 2013 and a Master of Arts (Art Praxis) from the Dutch Art Institute, Arnhem, in 2017. Originally from Melbourne, she now lives in Rotterdam where she is the founding editor of Unbidden Tongues and co-curator of Playbill. Her involvement with the administrative sphere of institutional practice also plays out in her current role as assistant director-curator at Kunstverein, Amsterdam.
